Transformation: So Long Tapestry

Lately, we've been talking a lot about transformations within your home. Whether it be a little paint or just a bit of accessorizing, sometimes it's the little stuff that goes a long way. And, sometimes, you gotta go all in with the big change. 

Like with this chair, for instance. This lovely, tapestry inspired, late 90's chair has been with me for a very long time. Like my first apartment, long time. You've probably never seen it before because I've spent the last 4+ years strategically editing it out of every. single. photo.
Sure, I could have sold this chair and purchased a lesser quality chair for a couple hundred dollars, but this is a solid, well constructed, extremely comfortable chair that really does deserve another stab at life. 

So, when I stumbled across a great sale ($10/yard) on upholstery weight fabrics at a local design shop, I pulled the trigger - bought the fabric and sent this chair off to the upholsters.
And, clearly, it was worth it because look at her now. 

ps. don't miss another new-to-me little side table courtesy of my parents…did I not tell you every post from now until eternity would feature something of theirs!

So good, I'll show you another angle. 
Can you even believe it's the same chair? I feel like I've waited forever to do this…give or take 14 years. 
My point is, don't rush to purge or dismiss items that aren't necessarily your style. There is so much that can be done to make them work in your home and with your style. 

Since moving in a little over a year ago, the den has been the most "unfinished" room in the house. Because of that eyesore of a tapestry chair, perhaps? But, suddenly, it's starting to come together and have a presence all its own. Time and patience, I suppose. Oh, and a truck load of stuff from my parents. Details, details.
Now, to get rid of that hideous ceiling fan…

until next time,
